Q.How To Save An Overwatered Lemon Cypress?

Zone singapore | Anonymous added on December 12, 2022 | Answered

My lemon cypress started browning a few days ago, I went google to search what was happening and get like overwatering was the reason. I proceeded to take the plant out of the soil and realised that the plant has been sitting in wet soil for quite sometime which resulted in overwatering. But when I went google to search on how to save overwatered lemon cypress , none of them helped me in any ways. By any chance are u able to teach me how to save my overwatered lemon cypress? Also I have air dryed the roots of my plant.

It sounds like you have done, much, of what is needed. Now, I would treat with a fungicide, make sure to have it in a container that allows you to remove extra water, and be sure to allow the top several cm to dry very thoroughly between each watering.
